I googled it, over and over and over again LOL. I mean there's discussions all over the web plus informative articles. Unless you get a structural engineer in there to look at your building, you'll probably never know. It depends on the placement of the tank on the beams, if it's by a wall instead of middle of the floor, if the stand distributes properly (full stands are better than 4 legged stands), etc.
Also, if your building was built 50 years ago, as opposed to 10 years ago, you're probably better off. I know it sounds weird because you would think its old, but they don't make things like they used to haha! My building is 80 years old and built like a fortress!!
